Light & Motion Offers HMI Replacement that Fits in the Palm of a Hand

Light & Motion has announced its newest and most powerful light — the Stella Pro 10,000c — a new LED fixture that weighs only 750 grams.

Light & Motion said the new light will ship next month to dealers and distributors in the United States, the UK, France, Switzerland, Korea and Australia.

The Stella Pro 10,000c features an ultra-compact design that fits into the palm of the user’s hand. It is powered from AC or DC. A digital screen reports power levels, while a magnetic control ring makes adjusting output simple and repeatable.

Consistent with all Stella Pro Lights is the “Chip on Board” array that provides a smooth, evenly dispersed, 120-degree native beam with high CRI and TLCI ratings of 90+ and 93 respectively.

The Pro 10,000c illuminates with 10,000 lumens and delivers 20,580 LUX at one meter with the available Fresnel. To maintain constant output at these substantial power levels, the 10,000c integrates a variable speed fan that remains off until the light exceeds 5000 lumens.

At full power, the light delivers the equivalent light output of HMI units four times its size. It features IP54 water resistance to be fully capable for challenging outdoor shoots. It passes the rigorous FL-1 standard drop test, passing six drops, one per side, on concrete from one meter.

The Stella Pro 10,000c retails for $1999 and includes a 50-degree optic, barn doors, c-stand mount and power supply.
